Paulista Avenue, Sao Paulo

4.4
#1 of 1,576 in Shopping in Brazil
Experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city by walking through Paulista Avenue, a 3 km (2 mi) thoroughfare notable for headquartering a large number of financial and cultural institutions. This important city avenue houses an extensive shopping area, as well as Latin America’s most comprehensive fine art museum, the Sao Paulo Museum of Art. Located in one of the highest parts of the city, the avenue is clustered with radio and TV stations, and is served by numerous subway and bus lines. Once a popular residential neighborhood, the avenue is flanked by lavishly ornate mansions, former homes of the city’s most powerful coffee barons. Bumper-to-bumper traffic is frequent in this area even outside peak hours, so avoid visiting by car or taxi.

  • Dirty place and strong odor of urine. with aggressive care, verging on incoveniencia, both external as internally (shops). Diversity of products and services offered with popular prices, but BAD quality. Strong point, patrolling.

  • Too good, since a busy shopping day, and moved to a Sunday calm and relaxing. Great choices of shops and restaurants.

  • Business, shopping, sightseeing, lodging? The main avenue of Sao Paulo has it all, and even turns into a vast area of laser on Sundays!
